Holistic Treatment for Leaky Gut Syndrome (Part 2)

By Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J), D. N. Sc.


In the previous article, I discussed the symptoms of leaky gut syndrome and its possible causes. To recap, the leaky gut allows substances such as toxins, microbes, undigested foods, waste, larger than normal macromolecules to leak through an abnormally permeable gut wall.

Consequently, this will cause your immune system to react. You may experience symptoms including bloating, diarrhea, indigestion, unhealthy weight loss, sugar craving, genital yeast infections, chronic fatigue, mind fog, and depression.

Possible causes of leaky gut syndrome include yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habit, psychological stress, and a liberal use of antibiotics and other potent drugs. Luckily, leaky gut syndrome is reparable. In this article I will address the holistic treatment for you to repair the leaking guts and regain health and vitality.


Herbal Therapy for Yeast and Parasitic Infections

To prevent the worsening of leaky gut syndrome, the pathogenic yeasts and parasites need to be removed simultaneously as soon as possible from your intestines. A strong herbal detox program is needed to perform this task quickly and effectively. You also need herbal formulas that can repair the lining of your digestive tract and allow healthy tissues to grow.


Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program

An anti-yeast nutritional program contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals. Even though this is a tall order for most Americans who are used to Standard American Diet (SAD) loaded with the above no-no’s, you need to do the best you can to follow these “Eight Commandments,” so that you can nourish your body and starve the little enemies: yeasts and parasites in your body.

To learn more about what to eat, and what to avoid, read my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking. They may be available in your local libraries.


Manage Your Stress Effectively

Most clients reported to me that their leaky gut syndrome flared up when they were under stress. Stress is part of life. When managed effectively, stress can propel you to the higher level of success or spirituality. Many roads lead to Rome. Try different ways to reduce your stress.

Daily prayers, meditation and exercise are found to be very simple and effective ways for stress management. If you don’t know how to meditate, visit my website: and download the 10-Minute Meditation Guide for free. Practice 10-Minute Meditation daily, and you will enjoy newfound peace and harmony.


Use Antibiotics or Other Potent Drugs Very Cautiously

As explained in the previous article, the western medical establishment uses antibiotics as a “catch-all” magic bullet for all infections without consideration of strengthening the immunity. Cortisone is another popularly used drug to inhibit the inflammation process but destroys the immunity.

They may be effective in inhibiting inflammations for a short period of time; however, in the long run, they weaken your immunity, and thus allow yeast overgrowth. Remember, as I stated repeatedly in previous articles, yeasts and parasites are “Siamese Twins.” They go hand in hand. When yeasts overgrow in your body, so do parasites.

As I mentioned in the previous article, when people developed leaky gut syndrome, they usually encounter all the factors described above. However, if you employ a holistic approach to healing your leaky guts, you will experience improvement. Be patient with yourself, and with your life. Leaky gut syndrome is curable!
